Defective Product Claims

We know that defective products can cause serious injury. That’s why we’re here to help you.

We can help you get the compensation you deserve following an injury caused by a faulty product

With  years’ experience working with personal injury claims, we’re proud to say we’ve helped thousands of people make a compensation claim.

We know that you didn’t choose to get injured, or expect it when you purchased your product.

We know that your injury will have had an impact on your life, financial, physically or psychologically.

That’s why we’ll use our experience, and our network of solicitor firms, to help you claim the compensation you deserve following an injury caused by a faulty or defective product.

Am I eligible to make a defective product compensation claim?

If you’ve been injured as a result of using a faulty or defective product, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

When you choose to use or purchase a product, that product or equipment should be safe for you to use in the way it was designed to be used.

The product should be functional and perform the task it was created to do without causing harm to the person using it, or the people around it at the time of use.

The Consumer Protection Act 1987 states that if a product causes personal injury, and that it wasn’t due to misuse of the product, then the person injured has a legal right to make a compensation claim against the retailer or manufacturer responsible.

If you were using a product correctly and it malfunctioned, or if it was defective and you were injured as a result, then we could help you make a defective product compensation claim.

The accident and your injury must have happened within the last three years.

You can speak to us now about your accident and whether you have a compensation claim. Call us for free on   0800 540 4258

You’re under no obligation to claim when you do call us, and we can answer any questions you might have about the claims process.

Why make a defective product compensation claim?

We understand that, if you’ve been injured by a faulty product, your injury may have had a number of effects on your life.

You may have had to take time off work to recover from your injury. You may also have had to pay for medical treatment, physiotherapy or travel.

Making a compensation claim for the effects a defective product has had on your life can help recover lost earnings, as well as any additional costs you’ve had to pay, as a result of your accident.

By making a compensation claim, you will also be highlighting the unsafe product to the manufacturer or retailer. This may result in them recalling the product to prevent others experiencing what you’ve been through.

You may also be highlighting negligent behaviour by a manufacturer or retailer. Similarly, this could lead to changes which make their products safer for others in the future.

Andrew Greenwood explains what you should do if you think you have a claim.


Making a compensation claim for a defective product

You can see if you have a compensation claim for your defective product by giving us a call on  0800 540 4258  for free.

When you contact us, or provide us with your details so we can contact you, you’ll speak to one of our legally trained advisors. Our advisors are on hand to answer any questions you have and assess whether you have a faulty product claim.

During your call, we’ll ask you questions about the effects your injury has had on your life.

You might want to have the dates of your accident to hand when you speak to us. You might also want to make a note of where you bought your product from and the product type, along with the dates of any medical treatment and time off work you’ve had.

We can accept estimated dates from you at this point, so don’t worry if you’re not sure.

If you’re considering making a faulty product compensation claim, we advise that you keep hold of any receipts you received when you purchased the product.

If we think you have a valid claim, we can put you in contact with a specialist solicitor. We’ll only do this with your permission.

Your specialist solicitor will have experience working with claims similar to yours. They’ll also be on hand throughout your claim to update you on its progress and answer any questions you might have.
